Environmental and Spatial Design Major  

Environmental and Spatial Design deals with the design of interior and exterior environments and spaces, applying sustainable practices to the design of retail and commercial spaces, or the design of products and environments that promote usability.  Design is a collaborative discipline and students work in teams and individually to find and solve design problems. They learn and develop skills that suit them for work in both the professional design industry and within organizations that employ design thinking. This major focuses on sustainable design practices that consider environmental, social, cultural and economic needs. Design is seen as part of a whole system.
